Offbeat place 8: George Everest’s House -
I indulged in Treking with a group there .
We rode for the next one and half hours to reach our first destination, George Everest's house. The man after whom the highest peak of the mighty Himalayas is named, lived in a house now in shambles on Hathipaon hill near Mussoorie. The spot is now a lovers escape, with a beautiful view of the mountains and Doon valley.To get a better view, we climbed the rugged mountain almost on all fours. There is no path made out, you have to climb the rocks, peeping at the deep crevasses behind you, hoping that you make it to the peak soon. For first time trekkers, it's advised to go with locals who know the way up.The view from the top of the snowcapped mountains glistening in the sunlight is breathtakingly beautiful. After trekking back to Everest house, we mounted our bikes and head to Mussoorie.
